They tried, but it just wasn’t enough. After an uninspiring first half in Atlanta last night, Carson Wentz and the Eagles fired back in the fourth quarter against the Falcons, ultimately falling short and losing 24-20. Philly’s housing market, on the other hand, is still going strong, even as the threat of a recession looms. And, if you’re longing for crisp fall days as the temperature climbs past 80 degrees today, look no further than our Fall Arts Guide, where you can find the best autumnal activities, concerts, festivals and more in the Philadelphia region.
If you’re looking to buy a house in the Philadelphia area, don’t count on a recession to help you win a bidding war or score a deal.
In fact, over the last seven years, home prices in Philly have risen nearly 46% as the population has grown, income increased, and vacant units vanished.
And though signs suggest a national economic slowdown is coming, the strength of Philly’s local housing market puts the region in a strong position to weather a recession, experts say.
Don’t let the lingering summer weather fool you; fall and its bounty of festivals, concerts, and autumnal events have arrived in Philly. Our critics have picked the best of what’s to come in our Fall Arts Guide, so you can sit back, sip your pumpkin spice latte, and enjoy the harvest.
